“Harrington for Two Nights”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

This is a pretty good hotel however there is a night club across the street that is open from 10:30 pm to the wee hours of the morning. We had a room at the front of the hotel and between the tram going back and forth all night and the screamers and horns honking at the club all night it completely ruined our sleep even though we wore ear plugs. We had to sleep with the window open because it was so hot in the room. We requested a move to the back of the hotel the next day and it was better because you didn't hear the street car but you could still hear lots of loud voices and music.
The internet did not work in our room and we had to go down to the lounge to use our computer. They do not have a computer for their guests to use for free, there is a charge per minute to use it.
The breakfast was just average, nothing special.
If they could move the night club it would be a very good place to stay. No air conditioning or facecloths.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel.

With an excellent location, clean room, great wifi, friendly staff, good breakfast, what more could you need? Will definitely stay here again when we return to Dublin. Convenient to the Bleeding Horse Pub, and Grafton Street.

Our last stay at the Harrington Hall in July of 2013 was as always a 4 star experience. As an events coordinator for a large training organisation we always send our delegates to the Harrington Hall. It is a beautiful accommodation of Georgian splendour with all modern conveniences in each room.
The service is impeccable. We are always treated like Royal guests and part of the family. There is a friendly, warm and welcoming atmosphere with the elegance of old Georgian Dublin style. The breakfasts are superb and room service for those who prefer to dine in their rooms is ideal.
This Hotel can facilitate and anticipate your every need as a guest and I highly recommend a stay there the next time you are in Dublin. The convenience in the heart of the city is ideal for leisure, romantic, family or business trips.
request a backfacing room for the quietest part of the hotel - but basic street noise in front has not distrubed our guests once. We bring our conferences to Dublin at least 4 times a year and stay at the Harrington everytime!

The positives: The hotel was very clean, very beautiful and the staff were all very helpful and polite.
Being in the centre of a city, it is of course quite loud until late at night. The night clubs weren't so bad but the custom of taxis blaring their horns is very grating. Ask nicely at reception and they will give you ear plugs, but really this should be standard issue.

Breakfast was a little odd; Continental style but only one of each thing - one croissant, one bread roll, one slice of pineapple etc so you had to take it in turns to fill your plates while the staff kept replenishing the fridges. The breakfast was pretty average so on the second day we ate elsewhere for half the price.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back are surely quieter!

Spend 4 nights in this hotel. I requested a room at the back beforehand as a popular night club is located in the same street, things can get a bit loud there during the night. The room I got was at the back indeed, spacious and decorated in a nice cosy style. Room was clean, had good TV, ceiling fan and nice selection of teas.

I didn't have any breakfast so can't judge this item, but can say service was excellent. They printed my boarding pass on request and gave me a pile of paper when I requested a few sheets to make notes. Friendly staff in general, also the cleaning ladies.

Location is perfect, in the nicer part of the city center. Not a party location (Temple Bar) so more quiet but with plenty shops and restaurants around, as well as the local Regus office.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are more quiet, the hotel is in a street which also houses a popular night club.

This hotel is in a nightclub district and on Friday and Saturday nights (when we stayed), the streets fill with hundreds of drunks exiting the nightclubs at 4 in the morning. Taxis clog the streets and blast their horns continuously. This happened both nights and lasted from about 3.30 am till after 5.00 am. Needless to say sleep was impossible. Would never stay here again. For the price which was high, the amenity was very poor.

Stayed here for a couple of nights in July. Really comfortable and charming hotel with friendly and helpful staff. We stayed in a recently refurbished room which was just fab. The hotel has its own small car park, which we found very handy as we were able to just park the car and forget about it for a couple of days. Perfect location too, for accessing the centre of Dublin. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for comfort and convenience
